would the president come out today and hold this news conference if he didn't have something big to announce? >> reporter: well, i think it may be a matter of using the bully pulpit of the presidency of the united states, essentially putting publish pressure on lawmakers so come back to the bargaining table with some serious ideas that they're willing to give a bit to find a deal. and so it's the president being able to -- the power of the presidency being able to take his case directly to the american public to say here's what i want to do, here's why we have to do it, and here's why we need these other people to get in line or get on board. and so we will see if it helps to make his case or whether it causes the respective constituencies to say well, that's just wrong, we're not going to do that, and whether it, you know, extends the impasse or whether it leads to an ultimate breakthrough. it's not clear at this point. >> and there is the bully pulpit that mike was referring to. mike emanuel, thank you very much, we'll see you after the president speaks. again, we're waiting fo
to be factored in as one big lie, the judge disagreed, jon. >> and the state also wants money from casey anthony when this is all over, right? >> hundreds of hundreds of thousands of dollars is my estimate is what could be levied against casey anthony, not only the cost for the six-month investigation, the searching, the following up of leaders, the interviewing, the trying to track down all of these imaginary people, plus the prosecution which has been quite costly over the past 2 1/2 to three years as they had to pay for a lot of lab tests, a lot of investigators, so the judge is going to rule on that financial burden that casey anthony is likely to be levied in about 30 days from now, and for the moment, though, bottom line, casey anthony is heading back to the orange county jail. jon: a lot of people thought the saga could effectively end today. it goes on. phil keating, from orlando, thanks. alisyn: fox news is america's election headquarters, congresswoman michelle bachmann is stepping up her campaign for president, releasing a new television ad in iowa today, the minnesota congresswoman u
the chances of another big financial crisis and another big taxpayer bailout are lower now thanks to the law. president obama signed it a year ago today, as you mentioned. treasury secretary timothy geithner says the financial system is stronger by almost any measure now, but critics say consumers and taxpayers are still at risk. the law required the sec and other regular lay -- regulators to write 243 new rules but regulators have completed fewer than 50 of those. other critics say they don't want these new rules anyway. they are hurting innovation, economic growth and job creation, jenna. jenna: we talk about financial regulation, there's a slew of different changes, and it's easy to get a little wonky, peter, right? what are some of the changes that are happening today when it comes to our regulatory reform? is. >> reporter: hey, jenna, i love that o.k. with key stuff. jenna: i know you do.

: anything big happened while you were gone? jenna: got married, went on a honeymoon. i'm back for good. jon: glad to have you. brand-new developments in the debt showdown as the clock ticks closure to government default. now the tea party is stepping in, pushing its cut, cap and balance plan. jenna: ccp, a measure that raises the limit on america's credit card by another $2.4 trillion, only after big and immediate spending cuts, as well as a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced federal budget. jon: it looks likely to pass in the house but the senate is a very different story. mike emanuel live at the white house for us now. what is the latest from the white house, first of all, mike? >> reporter: jon the white house perspective that this is a huge problem, our nation's debt, so this is the time to do something big and do something bold. it is not clear where the votes will be in terms of trying to do something of that nature. our understanding is from talking to sources, both here at the white house and on capitol hill is there were conversations back and forth between the presiden
's no symptom of big government more menacing than our debt. break its grip, and we begin to liberate our economy and our future. >> i'm asking you all to make your voice heard. if you want a balanced approach to reducing the deficit, let your member of congress know. >> reporter: enough people did, presumably supporters as well as opponents, that the speaker's web site crashed along with those of a couple of other republicans and at least one democrat. republicans say the president wants a long-term debt ceiling hike to keep it out of his re-election bid. democrats say the bond rating agencies want a long-term hike. a short-term one, they say, would risk a downgrade of this country's credit rating, and that would hike credit interest rates on everyone. jon: the overwhelming number of calls coming into senate offices are urging members to oppose the president's call for tax increases, so we'll see. wendall goler, thank you. jenna: for more on this developing story, we're joined by a congressman who says both sides are responsible for the mess we're in. congressman bill pascal of new jerse
beginning to deal with all the grief here. incredible this country is not that big, only 5 million people, so such a massive attack has really taken its toll. as someone was telling me this morning, everybody knows somebody, that knows somebody or is related to them. the kids in the camp were womaning from all over the country. finally, jenna, it's very sad in so much of these parts the judge saying after tharbg the hearing waafter that, the hearing was closed and but he came out and talked a little bit about it. he said he was not interested in the number of people he had to kill, he just wanted to make a statement. he certainly did that. jenna: certainly indeed and sad as you say, greg. more developments as we get them from norway, greg burke, thank you. jon: we still have debt deadlock on capitol hill with the default deadline just eight days away now. congressional leaders are still struggling to hammer out some kind of a deal, one that would raise the limit on our nation's credit card while cutting trillions of dollars in spending. house speaker john boehner may unveil his own bill t
the verdict is in eventually, of course that is the big question, how soon that is going to come, afterwards the jurors who do want to participate in a public press conference, they will, and here is the room, this is a live feed from the axillary room. this was the overflow room during the trial, because every seat was always taken up every day of the six-week trial. this is where people from the media would go in there and watch the direct feed from the courtroom. it's now been converted to the jury post verdict news conference room. you can see the 12 jurors will know their seats by the placard, and whether they all show up or just half of them do, we don't know yet. that will be up to them. but it certainly will be a riveting and intriguing post-verdict news conference to find out how this jury comes to the conclusion that they are right now trying to come to. jon: if they come to one, let's hope it's not a hung jury. you showed us that video a minute ago of casey in court this morning, very animated, chatting with her attorney, but she also, i know, had an interesting reaction during cl
, and we quit doing all kinds of big spending programs and so forth. look, they talk about being able to bring the economy back in line, but their idea is to get more taxes so that they can spend it. and i guarantee you, the democrats will spend every dime of it. they're not going to conserve. that's why we have to hold the line on no tax increases, and we've got to get the spending cuts in order to send the message out. if we have spending cuts, i think the market and everybody else will start saying hallelujah, we're going to come out of this and do very well. gregg: senator, one more question, the club for growth, a progrowth, low taxes group, is now targeting you. in fact, they point to your lifetime rating at 74 percent, placing you at the bottom of republicans serving. are you the next republican in trouble with your own party? >> well, i'm surprised that they'd blow their money trying to take me down, because their own people have voted -- their leader voted for, you know, for increasing the debt ceiling and a lot of the things they're accusing me of. but i don't know where the
